Students given the chance to make contact with potential employers at both Hanoi and Saigon South campuses.
The RMIT 2018 Jobs Fair held at both its Hanoi and Saigon South campuses on August 30 followed a “one-stop-shop” model that gave students access to a variety of options. As well as full-time and part-time positions, internships were also on offer, as were direct job interviews.
The fair attracted about 50 domestic and multinational corporations such as Unilever Vietnam, Prudential Vietnam, DHL Vietnam, Intel, Coc Coc, Shopee, L’Oreal Vietnam, CapitaLand, Panasonic Vietnam, Aeon, and InterContinental Saigon.
Ms. Tracey Do, Human Resources Manager at Shopee, expressed her pleasure at participating in and sponsoring the event for the first time. She said it provided practical benefits to both businesses and students and hoped that Shopee would receive even more applicants from RMIT.
Meanwhile, Mr. Le Tran Quoc Thai, head of recruiting talent at L’Oréal Vietnam, appreciated the initiative from RMIT Vietnam. “Through exchanges with businesses and chatting with students at our booth, RMIT Vietnam students showed they learned in advance about L’Oreal Vietnam and we actively discussed our recruitment needs,” he said. “This helps students understand and prepare before leaving school.”
Mr. Nguyen Minh Nhut, Human Resources Manager at Maison, one of the largest international fashion distributors in Vietnam, said the fair met the recruitment needs of the business. “We want to recruit RMIT Vietnam students, especially those who are studying in the fields of fashion, digital marketing, and design,” he said. “They have experienced an international learning environment, so adapting to working with us will be easy.”
Attending the jobs fair, Mr. Nguyen Huu Tho, a final year student in Business Administration and Fashion, said there were many internships and suitable jobs available.
The fair is the final event in a chain of diverse activities aimed at ensuring students pursue a rewarding career, such as visiting and exploring the culture at companies and attending workshops on enhancing business skills. The week attracted over 1,000 students to both the Hanoi and Saigon South campuses- VNEconomic Times.
